Sodini's Bertolucci's on Cypress Avenue is local restaurateur Peter Sodin's painstaking effort to recreate the magic of Bay Area's once-revered Italian eatery that operated from the 1928 to 2003. With much of its old-world decor intact, the experience of dining here is a bit off-beat and typical of restaurants in Italy. The homemade food served here, however, sweeps you off the feet with mouth-watering preparations of meat and vegetables. Start off with Caprese Salad and Antipasti Platter for starters and then order for a Classic Veal Scaloppine or their signature Chicken Alla Sodini, which is served with ham and cream sauce. For desserts you can opt for Sicilian Cannoli or the Tiramisu. The traditional and authentic Italian food is complemented by a large selection of red, white and sparkling wines.
